I was wearing a tank top in the desert, and the sun went down

My shoulders were cold.

But he wouldn't put his arms around me.

Instead, he pushed me away.

So short, but it means so

So short, but it means so much. I guess it leaves a lot for the reader to decide what to think for themselves.

Indeed... Hey, I saw this

Indeed... 
Hey, I saw this waiter the other day that looks very much like you. I might have told you about him before. Tried to get his picture but for some reason (user stupidity) I couldn't figure out how to take one from my phone quickly enough. Oh well. He really resembles you a lot.

Weird! I have never met

Weird! I have never met anybody that looks like me in person. Maybe it is my long lost twin! I wonder if I am the evil one? o.o

All this topten talk got me to thinking and your poem inspired me to start my own spotlight on amazing poems that captured me, so yours is the first. I posted a link on my PP home page. I hope you don't mind?

My pleasure & my thank you for sharing this poem! I think what I love so much about this poem is that you have so many of the things I love about poetry woven into it. It's condensed. Everything extraneous is stripped away, leaving nothing but the distilled emotion of the story in poetic form. And there is a level of ambiguity to the events that allow me to insert my own thoughts and emotions into the poem. I enjoy revisiting this poem simply to ponder the scene, the events that preceded and followed the poem. This poem simply inspires me through the richness of its brevity.

Callousness

To be pushed away added injury, to not wish to share warmth was the real crime. - :D slc

Not very nice.... We all need warmth! Unless it's a hundred degrees, then we might, could use some chillin... ;)
